Google Code blog announced that the OAuth 2.0 Playground, is now open to developers. “Using Google Web APIs with the OAuth 2.0, is the recommended authorization mechanism, which simplifies experimentation with the OAuth 2.0 protocol and APIs that use the protocol,” said Nicolas Garnier of Google Developers team.
“Trying out some requests in the OAuth 2.0 playground can help you understand how the protocol functions and make life easier when the time comes to use OAuth in your own code.”
Garnier notes “With OAuth 2.0 Playground, you can walk through each step of the OAuth 2.0 flow for server-side web applications: authorizing API scopes, exchanging authorization tokens, refreshing access tokens, and sending authorized requests to API endpoints. At each step, the Playground displays the full HTTP requests and responses.”
The OAuth Playground can also use custom OAuth endpoints in order to test non-Google APIs that support OAuth 2.0 draft 10.
You can click the link button to generate a link to a specific Playground state. This allows quick access to replay specific requests at a later time.
To try, visit the OAuth 2.0 Playground site.
